To help you understand this scam, here’s a quote from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):
“A decision… by Medicare to stop using its beneficiaries’ Social Security numbers as account numbers has not gone unnoticed by scammers… The transition to new cards and numbers is ongoing and is scheduled to be completed in December of 2019… Always on the lookout for new hooks, scammers are on the move, developing ways to take advantage of any confusion that may be related to the transition… the FCC has been receiving complaints about scammers calling pretending to be Medicare representatives.”
